      Hello cutegoldfish,

      Preflop: That's the reason I'd just fold it actually, we could easily put ourself into difficult spots, he could easily have there hands like AK since he ain't raising that often and also it will be hard to play against him postflop. Also you didn't mention how he does play postflop, and if we are capable to make him fold or what was your plan. Therefore rather fold such a hand being OOP. But of course it's doable but you have to have reason for it and know why you Calling there.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine but I don't really get your line why you donking on river? He wont Call you anyways with worse, just Check and hope to see free showdown, as played Bet/Fold.

      Best regards.
